Planetary dynamics form the whole of your consciousness and are generally perceived as your singular self; but sometimes their separate parts are strongly felt, like when the heart [moon] and mind [sun] are in conflict. . .

The ascendant, also called the rising sign, is the zodiac sign on the eastern horizon at the time of birth. The ascendant is defined as your persona - how others see you - and it enhances, subdues or otherwise modifies your planetary dynamics.
The ascendant sign is placed on the [1st house] cusp of a birth chart - the Wheel of Life. The wheel is divided into 12 Houses; each house represents specific life issues. Your ascendant sign determines where the planets reside on the Wheel and which life issues have heightened relevance in your lifetime.
But.. the ascendant and house system require an EXACT birth time to calculate, which many people don't know and can't access.
The good news is, the essential basics, the planets, aspects & signs, do not require an exact birth time*. And though the ascendant and life issues are informative, they're not essential.
[astrologer Benjamin Franklin considered the ascendant and house system irrelevant..just saying..]
So I offer two BirthPrint™ types:
A Solar BirthPrint™., which does not require an exact birth time, the Sun sign is on the 1st house cusp and the houses are a silent backdrop to the planets, aspects & signs.
A Natal BirthPrint™, which requires an exact birth time, puts the ascendant on the 1st house cusp, displays the planets in their proper houses and reveals the life issues that are most significant.
All BirthPrints™ are Solar BirthPrints™, unless a Natal BirthPrint™, is requested.
* The Moon is the only planet that moves more than a degree a day, moving about 12 degrees daily. When an exact or approximate birth time is unknown, using a noon birth time means the Moon won't be more than 6 degrees off, usually less. Not ideal, but workable
solar birthprint™ & natal birthprint™
birthPrint™ copyright 1994
Every BirthPrint™ includes an explanation of the three essential basics: planets, aspects & signs, so you can begin to analyze it yourself; you're the most qualified since you know yourself best experientially. And you may order a BirthPrint™ with or without a two-page analysis by yours truly. [any analysis by any astrologer who has no knowledge of your childhood programming and isn't psychic is largely speculative; so the rare analytical astropsychologist who hears your story is a find!]
Your BirthPrint™ is a beautiful mandala that inspires a lifetime of empowering insights.
